Fine arts in the modern world: la_104_


1. Compare and contrast Adolf von Menzel’s Iron Mills (Das Eisenwalzwerk—Moderne Zyklopen; translated:  The Iron-Rolling Mill--Modern Cyclops; 1875; oil on canvas. Condition 30.3) delay Thomas Eakins’ The Agnew Clinic (1889; oil on canvas.  Condition 30.21).  For a clearer end, inquiry for von Menzel’s and for Eakins’ effect inferior Google-Images and upload the Wikimedia picture.  Enlarge the pictures and scroll counter the shade, so that you can actually see the specialtys.  Describe each effect in a disjoined condition of at moderationest 75 suffrage (completion of 150 suffrage for twain). 

In a third condition, prepare on the differences and similarities including the exposition of the two divergent worlds and classes of community reflected in the art effects.  What is the passageure of each effect –one a painting of an lusty mill in Germany, the other of a medical amphitheater in the United States?  Were twain effects commissioned or painted by the professor out of his own hanker?  Your third condition should entertain a reserve of an affixed 50 suffrage.

2. Which art effect in portion 31 is considered by some critics the “first late painting” (this is a plead from your passagebook, thus, you are asked to invent the plead as courteous-behaved-behaved as the restricted art effect to which Fiero’s passage refers)?  List the professor, name, determination, average, and condition calculate, and interpret why it is considered the “first late painting.”  You may plead from the passagebook, but do not pretermit to evidence the page calculate!  (Only a one-sentence confutation is required for this exposition.)

 

3. Look closely at Marcel Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 (1912; oil on canvas; condition 32.11).  Read the advice in your passagebook granted by Fiero on Duchamp’s effect as courteous-behaved-behaved as the advice on Umberto Boccioni’s Unique Forms of Continuity in Space (1913; bronce; condition 32.9), and the passage on “The Birth of Excitement Pictures” (so in your passagebook).  Expand your freshly gained conversance (CRUCIAL) by balbutiation the online passage on Duchamp’s effect granted by the Philadelphia Museum of Art at: http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/permanent/51449.html.  

Describe Duchamp’s painting in specialty including the forthcoming representation habit in Paris (1912 in the Salon des Indépendants) and in New York City (1913 at the Armory Show) in at moderationest 75 suffrage.

Add a condition discussing how Duchamp’s definition differs from the transmitted “reclining nudes in the art” (google the turn to see examples).  What could this moderation for the transmitted picture of the effeminate in the arts (i.e., what do reclining women do as unanalogous to women walking down stairs?)?  In the corresponding condition, interpret the relation among Duchamp’s painting and the inception of excitement pictures.  Write an affixed 75 suffrage.
